The Cranberry Cotoneaster is a top-rated spreading groundcover that is non-invasive but that will cover an area over 6 feet across with a single plant. Rising only 2 or 3 feet tall it is perfect on slopes and banks, or to fill terraced walls. Plant it as well at the front of beds that border broad paths and driveways, to soften the hard, straight edges. It has attractive glossy leaves that turn brilliant red in fall, and the small pink flowers of spring become ¼ inch red berries by fall.

  • Dense mound of arching, herring-bone branches
  • Attractive small glossy leaves turn red in fall
  • Pink flowers in spring
  • Big display of red berries in fall
  • Excellent groundcover for slopes, banks and over walls

Plenty of sun is perfect for the Cranberry Cotoneaster, but it will take a little partial shade too. It grows well anywhere in zones 4 to 7. Any well-drained soil suits it, including alkaline soils and clays. A little attention to watering during the first year or two will pay dividends in good growth, but otherwise no serious care is needed. If enough space is allowed when planting, pruning will be unnecessary. Pests and diseases are rare and this is an unbeatable groundcover, which is especially suitable for slopes and banks.
